Les Vents d'Anges Viognier

Les Vents d'Anges Viognier Wine Details
Price: $17.95 per bottle

Description: This off dry style Viognier was fermented in stainless steel and aged "sur lies" to provide a richer, creamier palate. An inviting floral nose leads the way to dried pineapple and tropical fruit flavors with peach and apricot undertones. A refreshing summer wine.

Varietal Definition
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.
